And everybody knows acts of that
kind, all of which are in restraint of
trade, are being performed every day.
If Senator Cummins had stopped t
think just a moment he would have
known his sweeping statement would
not bear the test of common sense.
This is a mild sample of the criti
cism that is being directed agains-t

the Standard Oil anil Tobacco case".
Cummins' criticism differs from the
others in Hint he knows what he is
talking about but chooses to talk
rather as a demagogue than as a well
read lawyer. The greater lKimber of
criticism are made by men who
havo no knowledge either of the law

A Case of Graft
One of the most significant news
items recently published In The It2
publican appeared hi Saturday's is
sue in connection with tin- Evei'
glades matter, now under Investiga
tion by a committee of the house of
ropn-s.-ntutives. The news item was
s-nt out by the Associated Press ami
is thoroughly reliable. It is to the
effect that Solicitor McCain, when
testifying before the committee, filed
a full list of congressmen who have
been accompanied on speaking tours
by experts of the department of ag
riculture and who. through that
mr.niK, had their traveling expenses
paid by the government.
For the past several weeks con
gress has been imbued with the
spirit of investigation. It is investi
gating the steel trust, the money
tust, the shoe machinery trust, the
sugar trust, the agricultural depart
ment, the military de'mrtiucnt, a
senator from Illinois and so on ad
infinitum. So. you will think, of
course, that it would at once rush
into an investigation of these con
gressmen who, according to the
sworn testimony of a high official of
the government, were guilty of what
Iiniks suspiciously like obtaining
money by false pretense.
Rut congress did nothing "f tin
kind. Instead, the investigating com
mittee refused even to permit the
names of thse eorrupt statesmen to
appear on the record. Nobody knows,
and perhaps nobody ever will know,
just how much these nimble fingered
gentlemen pilfered from the treasury,
and the r.-ason is, the committee
covered up the unsavory transaction.
Tliis m-wspaper doesn't know if tho
men alleged to Imivo dune this thin,;

does know their graft has been con

tion of difficulty it may be said that
undoubtedly every lawyer in Arizonji
who hus even skimmed through the
books written by the leading kiw
writers knows the principle of rea
sonable restraint is recognized by all
the authorities and has been for
hundreds of years. There are hun
dreds of thousunds of men in the
United States who not only kin,
that some restraint of trade not only
is in everyday use but who know
that it is a necessity in the very nu
ture of things.
Now. stlpposo a case. Suppose
Jim Smith comes here from New
York. Jim Smith wants to engage
in the dry goods business and he
makes a deal to buy out some mer
chant on Washington street. Jim
Smith buys not only the stock hiicI
fixtures but he buys- the intangible
asset known as the good will, and
every business man knows the good
"will of a going concern is a very
substantial part of its assets.
Anil since Jim Smith buys the good
will he naturally puts a clause in the
contraot of sale providing for his
protection in tilts important matter,
lie may bind the seller to an agree
ment not to engage in the same lin
of business in Phoenix for. say. the
space of a year. Here is an absolute
contract in restraint of trade; and ii
.is a contract any court in America
would uphold. So far from being op-
